How Bravo’s ‘The Singles Project’ Integrates Fan Participation in a Week’s Time

rsz_dish-070114-singles-project-kerry (1)A few weeks back we wrote about Bravo’s new ‘real-time dating docu-series,’ ‘The Singles Project.’ Cast members are trying to meet people in New York. The social TV angle is that fans have a say in anything from what the cast members will wear on their next date to who they will date.

The most recent episode was the sixth most social cable reality program in primetime with 4,340 tweetsEpisode three also resulted in  an increase in Twitter followers, up 33 percent from the previous week’s episode.

The production schedule is hectic, to say the least. Each show is filmed and edited in a week’s time and must take into account fan engagement on social and on the show’s Bravo.com home.

“A real-time production schedule is insanely demanding,” Rachel Smith, Vice President, Current Production for Bravo Media and EIC, ‘The Singles Project’ tells Lost Remote. “From shoot to edit to air, we are accomplishing in one week what we usually take six to eight weeks to achieve on a regular schedule.  This fast turnaround requires everyone in the field and in the editing room to be at the absolute top of their game.  It’s a constant loop of communication between all parties and around the clock hours.  The digital and social elements of this show continue seven days a week and constantly effect how scenarios play out on the show. We have dedicated digital producers who are monitoring the social interaction and giving feedback to the cast and crew in real time.  It’s a great, intensive ride though it’s a schedule not very conducive to summer vacationing.

Participation TV at the Fore of Bravo’s New Series ‘The Singles Project’

The Singles ProjectWhen ‘The Singles Project‘ debuts tonight it will become one of – if not the – most social TV shows to ever air on Bravo.

The show, which Bravo is dubbing a ‘real-time dating docu-series,’ follows a group of New York singles searching for romance. The online hub that the network created for the show will allow fans to engage directly with cast members and give them the power to potentially impact the dating choices the show’s cast members make.

“’The Singles Project’ allows fans to interact with cast members and potentially affect the on-air story in ways that have never been done before through social media,” Lisa Hsia, EVP Digital, Bravo and Oxygen Media tells Lost Remote. “We’re breaking the fourth wall that separates cast members from fans. From chiming in on the Singles’ date outfits to identifying potential matches for the show – the possibilities for viewer interaction are limitless.

Prosthetic Leg Incident Drives Conversation During ‘Real Housewives of New York’ Finale

1356928988Season 6 of ‘The Real Housewives of New York’ concluded this week with a bang. Literally. Aviva Drescher threw her prosthetic leg across a table at LeCirque and Twitter went wild. According to our analytics partner, Canvs, which measures Twitter sentiment for shows, the most reacted-to moment of the finale occurred directly in the aftermath of the leg incident when viewers commented on how “funny” the situation was. The second biggest moment, both in terms of overall volume and reaction volume, happened during the throwing incident itself when viewers called Aviva “crazy.”

Here are some other insights from Canvs followed by an infographic:

-35% of all reactions about the show happened in the ten minutes surrounding the leg incident.

- Other top moments didn’t drive nearly the same emotional intensity as the leg throwing.

-“Who cares?” spiked at 9:25 when Harry left with LuAnn instead of Sonja.

-“Love” spiked about Heather’s son as well.

- Total Emotional Reactions: 7,804

- Total Tweets: 23,891 Read more

Bravo Unveils New Social TV Initiatives

Bravo-LogoLast week, Bravo unveiled three initiatives – ‘Select a Scene,’ ‘Mobile Pass,’ and social commercials – that will comprise a large part of its 2014 social TV strategy.

Dating App Created for Bravo’s ‘Online Dating Rituals of the American Male’ Goes Mainstream

1Bravo’s latest show, ‘Online Dating Rituals of the American Male,’ follows two men each episode as they explore the world of online dating. The men don’t use traditional dating sites like Match.com or newer dating apps like Tinder. Instead, they use Tryst – an app created specifically for the show.

In late 2013, the creators of the show reached out to Sway Network about creating an app for the show’s cast members to use that would make it easy to find dates online and then meet up in person, with the whole process being filmed.

Working closely with the ‘Online Dating Rituals’ team, Sway Network – the makers of Let’s Meet and Sway – came back with Tryst, and the app worked so well for the show that it is now available to consumers. Read more
